Welcome admitted students!
For your convenience, please print and use this page as a checklist to ensure that you have completed all necessary steps to enroll as a student at Northeastern University. We hope the new student information is helpful as you prepare to begin your studies. We look forward to welcoming you.
Academic Advising and Registration
New students should register via their myNEU account as soon as possible for the term in which they were admitted. The date on which registration begins and the registration procedure can be found on the Registrar's Office website. If you are unsure of the course(s) in which you should enroll, please contact your academic department.
Check the Registrar’s Office website for important dates.
If your address changes, please update through myNEU portal and notify your department and the Graduate School of Social Sciences and Humanities.
You will receive an e-bill shortly after you register for classes. If you have an assistantship, please pay the balance of what is not covered by your award. If you have billing questions, contact Student Financial Services at (617) 373-3190.
Massachusetts state law requires all students to submit a health report form to the University before beginning their studies. This report must include documentation of a physical exam within the last 12 months, documentation of a tuberculosis test within the last 10 years, and proof of immunity to tetanus, diphtheria, measles, mumps and rubella.
Please download the form from the University Health and Counseling Services' website. The form must be returned no later than 30 days prior to the start of classes.
If you do not submit the form, Health Services will block you from registering for your second semester at Northeastern. If you have any questions concerning the form, please contact University Health and Counseling Services at:

Graduate students are automatically charged for the health plan. If you have comparable Massachusetts required insurance, you must waive the NUSHP by the deadline established by Student Accounts. Please contact Student Accounts if you have any questions.
